This is going to be blunt. It may not be palatable for the rationally weak, morally book oriented, religiously strong and heterosexually strict. It is about the gay people. Oh that is sugar coating it, this is about homosexuality. Not exactly. There is another group involved too.
Homosexuality has been a part of human civilisation from the un-chartered times. It was there at the times of pharaohs, it was accepted or ignored on certain cultures. While being a non-issue in some, it was considered devilish in others. Literary, carving and similar art forms has depicted homosexuality and usually they were not in a condemned state.
The first recorded homosexual couple in history is commonly regarded as Khnumhotep and Niankhkhnum, an Egyptian male couple, who lived around the 2400 BCE. The pair are portrayed in a nose-kissing position, the most intimate pose in Egyptian art, surrounded by what appear to be their heirs.
Homosexual and transgender individuals were common in the pre-conquest civilisations in Latin America such as the Aztecs, Mayans, Quechuas, Moches, Zapotecs, and the Tupinambá of Brazil.
Homosexuality in China, known as the pleasures of the bitten peach, the cut sleeve, or the southern custom, has been recorded since approximately 600 BCE. These euphemistic terms were used to describe behaviours, not identities (recently some fashionable young Chinese tend to euphemistically use the term brokeback, duanbei to refer to homosexual men, from the success of director Ang Lees film Brokeback Mountain -wiki).
Homosexuality is present in every continent and every civilisation, irrespective of the time.
With the coming of the mono-theistic religions, homosexuality became a sin. A crime that goes against the so called laws of nature.
I got a question, who defines the laws of nature? A Penis and a Vagina are complimentary, agreed. But who said it has to be same species?
Homosexuality is condemned in the Bible, it also has to be considered that slavery is legal and sons are a prize sacrifice and daughters are left over for gang rape.
Gays and Lesbians, LGBT ( GLBT ) are as much part of the modern society as they were for the last multi-millennia. Sexual acts between a male and a female has been redefined by Catholic Church as a reproduction oriented, child producing mechanical act. Sex is sin if protected or if the aim is not to bring forth a baby, they say. Church is the same MNC that recommends against the usage of condoms in the AIDS hit lands of rural Africa, where by increasing the probability of AIDS and reducing the protections that modern science has given to prevent it. All for God. On the similar lines, an AIDS vaccine would be considered as a threat to the existence of human beings directly marketed from hell produced by the devil himself. Making it totally against nature, god forbidden and a vile non-medicine that takes away the punishment God has bestowed upon the man for illegal, unnatural, adulterous, pre/extra marital, sexual affairs. As I remember, it was purported by the Church and a lot of people that Gays and Lesbians were the flag bearers for AIDS and other STD.
More likely Gays or Lesbians are not made, they are born.It is not something that people gain, nor is it a medical condition, It tends to be genetic. Studies are showing up positive aspects about the similarities among Gay Twins, and Richard Dawkins has postulated a probable explanation.
Homosexuality being present in many species is a convincing argument to sustain that it is not a sin that is not in nature, created just by man.
Homosexuality is being spoken about as a sin, something that goes against nature. But, it has been observed in about 1500 species, from primates to gut worms. If it was against nature, these poor animals, who does not have any idea about what Jesus did or whether they are a Catholic/ Protestant or a Hindu goat, they are destined for eternal punishment. (Though roast mutton in Hell gives me very happy thoughts). It is observed in uncorrupted nature ( Don’t know if human sexuality could be copied by Gut Worms) then how can it be the so called Against Nature ?
Now all those sinful animals apart, lets talk about what is really against nature. There has never been observed a celibate animal. A particular animal, wearing special adornments, that walks about in any group giving absolution to other animals for transgressions against other goats grass space, for coveting another gut worm’s wife and forgiving imagined sins. No animal which can reproduce, force itself from reproducing. Forcing oneself to not reproduce whilst having the necessary physical requirements, that ladies and gentleman, is against nature.
Oh yeah, I am talking about all those Catholic Priests and Nuns, who walks about forgiving sins and cry Against Nature at everything that deem so. They are against nature. Oh another thing, controversies. Repressing the sexual urge of every human being, or animal, puts the animal in heat. It is easily observable in the physical world how an animal in heat behaves. Well there are some other animals that are in heat too.
Yeah, I am talking about catholic priests. All those repressed sexual, natural, urges, held back for years ( sometimes they are never held back ) seems to come out in real cruel forms, which includes molesting children, pedophilia and a small slap on the wrist and asylum by the church.
Well, I guess it is high time that church agrees the Nuns and Priests to have sex, not that it is not happening, We really do not want our kids to be the testing ground of repressed sexual urges.
God save those poor deaf kids raped by the holy priests.
